A fellow travel blogger(http://backpakker.blogspot.com/) and I have launched a guided tour program which takes travellers to heartland of the 1000 year old Hoysala Kingdom. The tour involves telling lot of stories and sessions on the interesting history of Hoysala Kingdom. We will visit some fascinating temples that are off the tourist map, visited by very few people. Besides the heritage, we are staying amidst nature in a quiet place in a coffee estate. If time and weather permits, we may even attempt a walk in a coffee estate.. A batch is leaving on coming weekend – July 4th. To register and to know more, see here.
